This Dating App Allows Users to Reveal Their Political Leanings

Bumble recently rolled out its new Election Filters to help singles find others that share the same political views. While politics is often treated as a taboo subject, the topic is generally a strong indicator of compatibility. Now Bumble is letting individuals share their political leanings upfront, in order to help users find the perfect match.

Bumble's Elections Filters is a new feature that allows users to brand their profile with the name their presidential candidate of choice. Instead of simply stating which candidate the user supports, the filters use a red or blue tint to indicate support for democrats or republicans. The filters also include a cartoon icon of the presidential hopeful and a popular campaign slogan such as 'Feel the Bern!' or 'Don't be a Chump, Vote for Trump.' There are even non-partisan options such as 'Pizza for President' or '#Kanye2020.'

Besides functioning as a conversation starter, the new filters provide a unique way for users to search for a compatible partner.
